Final post on the Wedding Gown Quilt, linking up with Needlework Tuesday
From the original silk wedding gown……
Andrea's parents in 1960……..
The memory quilt for Andrea's bed to help her to remember the love of her family.
With the addition of 37 vintage handkerchiefs belonging to Andrea's Mother and Grandmother, this ended up measuring about 66" x 86". The initial hankies with the "S" are her Mom's and those with "R" are her Grandmother's.

I was honored to be entrusted with this project, these are precious items and I suspect that Andrea surrendered them to my keeping with some trepidation, especially for someone without knowledge of the process necessary to make the transformation from gown to quilt, she had to totally trust me!
I hope that she will find it a blessing in her life.
